Float In will be prompted by the first transaction of the day. If you don't wish to use the function, hit 'OK' and you can move on to using the system.
THIS MUST BE PERFORMED BY AN ADMINISTRATOR. IF NOT THE SYSTEM WILL BE LOCKED AND UNABLE TO BE ACCESSED BY OTHER USERS.
The float in function is generally performed at the start of service. This function allows the system to begin with a float amount in the cash drawer.
Note: if a float in amount has not been entered since the last float out, the system will automatically pop the Float In screen prior to any cash transaction takes place.
To enter a float in amount, touch the float in button, which will first open the cash drawer assigned to that terminal, then the following window appears.
Enter the number of each denomination by quantity to complete the float in process. Touch the OK button to accept the new cash drawer float. A print out of the Float In will be printed from the receipt printer.
The best practice is to place the the print out in the cash drawer for reference.
The float out function is generally performed at the end of a day’s trading. By floating out, the user can count all the cash in drawer, and reconcile the cash amount.
When counting the cash in the drawer performing the Cash out, count all cash in the drawer including the float value. Other is used to represent any additional non cash monies. When a float out is performed, a print out from the receipt printer shows the denominations entered for the cash drawer, and the excepted cash total.
The excepted cash total will balance with the cash in drawer amount (including the initial float in) if no money is lost during service.
